BOTETOURT COUNTY, Va.UPDATE ON REOPENING PLAN

Monday afternoon, Botetourt County School Board members unanimously approved a plan to reopen the district’s schools and a health plan for summer athletics conditioning.

The new school year will begin Aug. 10.

Students will go to school on Monday and Thursday or Tuesday and Friday and will learn remotely the other three days of the week.

Students can, however, choose to take all their classes remotely.

They will not be considered home schooled, so they will still be eligible to participate in athletics.

Students from the same family and who choose to go to school will have the same schedule.

Schedules will be released in July once transportation schedules have been finalized.
